Inaugurated on the 22nd of November 1998, the Sincai – Coposu Cultural Center of Bobota reunites the image of a museum dedicated to the two political and historical personalities as well as the legacy that they left to the commune.
The “Gheorghe Sincai" room contains a lot of information about the life and work of the illustrious”man of the Ardeal School”. The creation of the school in Bobota was his work; he was also the founder of the 300 Transylvanian schools. His vast work “The Chronicle of Romanians and of Several Peoples” completes his activity; he was also the translator and author of the main school books: the Primer, the Grammar, the Arithmetic Book and the Catechism in order to help students learn them more easily.
The materials exhibited in the “Corneliu Coposu” room bring information about him starting from childhood and until the last days of the politician. A genealogical tree reflects his origins from the Somes area of the Chioar, from important men whose destinies brought them to Bobota.
Here we find out about the events during his studies, his implication in PNTCD, then the “beginning of the end”, through his incarceration, along with other Romanian politicians and intellectuals, in communist prisons.
A map of Romania shows the image of Corneliu Coposu’s "trip" through most of the communist prisons and “reeducation centers”.
